I've got an enclosed trailer and I want to add a tire rack to the interior for a 2nd set of tires.

I'm looking for recommendations for the best way to build/mount this to the wall of the trailer. I guess I'm concerned about the weight of the tires (probably 120-130 lbs.) and its effect on the wall.

Thanks

The Exige has less clearance than the Elise, but I feel the Elise will face a similar problem.

My trailer's rear door folds down to become the ramp. I cannot clear this unaided. So, I put a 2x12 down under the door to raise it 2 inches. then I have a small ramp that came with the trailer that folds to extend the ramp a bit further (1'). I then (same as Feffman) have 2 2x12's about 3' long to get the front up on those before the ramp. I beveled the edge of the 2x12's to make it easier to get up on them. With all this, I clear the door by about 1/2".

So, yes, bring plenty of wood with you to use as ramps to get a better angle of attack.
